Women in Newfoundland and Labrador: a Collage
By Carmelita McGrath, Barbara Neis and Marilyn Porter
This anthology presents the most comprehensive collection to date focusing on the lives and experiences of women in Newfoundland and Labrador. From early settlement to late twentieth-century life, from working “on the flakes” to the cod moratorium, from the development of women’s organizations to political struggle and protest, Their Lives and Times examines the cultural, social and historical presence of women in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Their Lives and Times brings together in one place a lively mix of perspectives, including previously published work and new research, literary and scholarly work. It will be equally at home in an academic setting or on the bookshelf of any reader interested in the diversity of women’s experiences and the ways in which these experiences have been explored in new research and literature.
